we are growing bamboos inour garden in a pot a very big one. from the past few months the tips are getting dried and gradually the leaf can u tell us why this is happening
This indicates and issue with the roots. I would suspect that the bamboo may be pot bound and is not able to get enough water. It also may be root rot or underwatering. Check the roots and adjust as needed - repot if root bound, treat for root rot if you suspect that (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/treating-root-rot-gardening-tips-for-housplants.htm) or increase watering if you think it may be underwatered.
I have a decorative bamboo bush that had some limbs bent over by the snow. They have a large group of berries, which added to the weight of the snow. The branches are alive. My question is whether to tie them up to the remaining branches or should I cut them off?
Either solution would be fine. Which you use depends largely on how you want the plant to look.
My bamboo does not appear to be doing well. It is covered in ants. Could this be a fungus? What should I do to help it?
The ants are not the initial cause of your plant's demise. They are most likely "farming" for aphids, which commonly attack bamboo plants. The sticky residue left behind from the sap-sucking pests generally attracts the ants. Neem oil is a great organic treatment for the aphids, and may help with the ants as well.

We have a 20 foot x 20 foot concrete pond surrounded by bamboo. The leaves keep falling in and we are constantly having to drain the pond to clean it, which is to time consuming, expensive, and bad for the fish. The pond is an odd shape and we have had difficulties in netting it. We have just cut down the bamboo but discovered it's almost impossible to kill off.

We have a bad bamboo issue and need to add some type of barrier to it before it gets to our pool. It also needs to be 6 inches above ground. Or is there an herbicide to kill bamboo?
A thick plastic barrier would be best as it does not corrode like metal would in the ground. This company has instructions for the type of barrier you are looking for:
